Transforming Diabetes Management

22 November 2018

The prevalence of diabetes across the world is growing exponentially and new ways to manage it are urgently needed. However, the path to developing the latest advances and solutions is changing. Start-ups and entrepreneurs are now a critical source of innovation and their partnerships with corporates and healthcare systems are vital to bring solutions to the market.

Earlier this year, Ascensia announced the winners and runners-up from their Ascensia Diabetes Challenge innovation competition that focused on digital solutions for type 2 diabetes. For start-ups, being able to implement and test their ideas is key, but this is not an easy task.

At this session hear from an expert faculty about how to implement pilots and work with corporates and the NHS. You will also hear an update from Ascensia about the exciting collaborations they have started with the winners and runners-up.
